How many creative ways can you incorporate holiday colors into your diet?
We’ll be sharing lots of holiday themed recipes with you over the next few weeks. This @cbdsuperfood pesto pasta bowl is made subtly seasonal with hints of green from the pesto and hints of red from the noodles.
These noodles are made from red lentils, which gives them a richer color and more nutrient value than normal wheat pasta!
The lentil base allows a serving of this pasta to contain much more protein than wheat-based noodles. This pasta is also naturally gluten-free, so it’s friendly for everyone! Thanks to the lentils, these noodles are high in dietary fiber, so a serving of this recipe will help to keep your digestion balanced!
We’ve topped ours with chopped, toasted walnuts to add flavor and crunch. Both the @cbdsuperfodo pesto and pasta are easy to make in big batches, so keep this recipe on hand for a busy week—you can make lots of pesto and pasta ahead of time to enjoy for lunch and dinner throughout the week!
